Terminal Server AND Registry Tweaks

All,

I have been doing some research on methods to improving HTTP and TCP performance on my terminal servers. I have 12 terminal servers that run stable, but are lacking when running web applications particularly web applications that are built in JSP.

Is there a list of must "hacks" to improve tcp and http responses on an aplication server? I know on my psersonal system I will typically modify basic registry settings such as MaxConnections and SynchMode5 which does help at times. On the TCP side would it make sense to apply settings like DefaultTTL, Disable PMTU Discover, PMTUBHDetect, TcpMaxDupAcks, Tcp1323Opts, SackOpts and/or MTU?

Any input in the matter would be greatly appreciated.

Is JSP server under your control?

No, the JSP is embeded in the application we use. It is very odd, It is a web application that we use, but when we click on specific elements with the web page, I can see that the query only took a mater of 1 second to run, but then I see the page flash a couple of time with the final flash actually presenting the page data.

Most likely it has database connection in JSP page, instead of using DB connection pool.
This is design failure, and you can not do anything about it.
You can ask site owner to monitor performance more carefully. (Compare to experts-exchange which seems to run JSP pages ;) )
